Dennis Rodman 'Person of Interest' In Hit & Run Investigation

7/22/2016 9:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0722-Dennis-Rodman-tmzDennis Rodman has been named a "person of interest" in a hit-and-run investigation in Santa Ana, CA -- after a late night collision Wednesday morning ... TMZ Sports has learned.

It's all based around an accident on the I-5 Freeway just after midnight. The California Highway Patrol responded a smashed BMW ... Dennis was NOT at the scene.

But someone at the scene told CHP that there was another car involved -- and Dennis was in it.

Cops are investigating -- and we're told at least one witness says Dennis was spotted at a bar, singing karaoke before the crash. 

We're told cops have been in contact with Rodman's camp. So far, no arrests have been made and no charges have been filed against Rodman. 

A rep for Rodman tells us, "We were just notified by the OC police last night and were waiting to talk to Dennis on who may have been in or driving his vehicle at the time of this incident. Dennis will certainly cooperate with authorities and allow them to inspect his vehicle for damages as well if these accusations are accurate."

Breaking News

Bizarre footage of the moments before Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson's car crashed into a pond -- and you can see the vehicle aimlessly drifting across several lanes of traffic. 

The footage shows the Chevy Impala slowly drifting into oncoming traffic around 4:20 AM on July 3rd ... before it ultimately goes over an embankment and into a retention pond. 

Cops responded to the scene and had to pull Robinson and a female passenger out of the sinking car. Cops say Robinson and the woman were asleep as the car was sinking. 

Don't worry, the cop was able to rescue the people ... and shockingly, Robinson was not charged with any sort of crime. The cop said there were no signs of impairment they were just tired.

7/19/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Talk about cool under pressure ... 

Johnny Manziel couldn't have been more polite and composed in the moments after he was T-boned in a hit-and-run incident in Dallas last month ... at least judging by the 911 call. 

TMZ Sports obtained the audio from the June 20th incident -- in which Manziel reports that his car door was smashed in by a 4-door Charger that sped off after the collision. 

"I'm okay. I'm not hurt ... but I was definitely just in an accident."

Johnny said he also had a witness who will vouch that the QB did nothing wrong

But the best part of the call is when the dispatcher asks for the caller's name -- and you hear the voice sheepishly respond, "Jonathan Manziel."

As we previously reported, cops are investigating the crash. As for Johnny, he refused medical attention and left for Cabo a few days later.

7/17/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ice-T's got no parallel parking game.

The actor was leaving the set of 'Law and Order: SVU' with plenty of room on either side of his Mercedes SL55, but couldn't clear the space without hitting the car behind him. 

Kinda funny ... it was just a love tap, which in NYC is no big deal. In L.A. ... it's a lawsuit.

Gonzalez says James' negligence injured him so badly, it's stopping him from enjoying his life as he did before the 2013 wreck.

Gonzalez is suing for pain, suffering and personal disfigurement and damages. 

NFL's Denard Robinson Escapes from Car Sinking In Pond ... ''Asleep Behind Wheel'

7/5/2016 2:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0705_Denard-Robinson_gettyCops in Jacksonville say Jaguars running back Denard Robinson had to climb out of a window of a car that was sinking in a pond this weekend ... after the 25-year-old fell asleep behind the wheel. 

According to the police report, obtained by FOX 30, Robinson's Chevy Impala had gone down an embankment and into a retention pond around 4:20 AM on July 3rd ... and was slowly sinking. 

When officers arrived on scene, they saw a passed out Robinson in the driver's seat and a female passenger next to him. The driver's side door was submerged in the water. 

An officer knocked on the door -- but Robinson opened his eyes and then went back to sleep. 

The responding officer explained ... "I continued to knock on the window until the passenger woke up and rolled the window down and said, 'What's up.'"

"I explained that their vehicle was in a pond and that they needed to exit," the officer wrote in the report. 

Despite the sinking situation, the officer says the woman REFUSED to exit the car and had to be physically pulled to safety.

The cop says he was able to unlock the car -- and went back for Robinson. 

Problem is ... Robinson believed he was on the road and refused to step out of the vehicle. 

Eventually, Robinson realized the situation -- but the drama continued. 

"The driver tried about three times to open the driver’s door which was the side that was underwater. I had to keep reminding the driver to climb out of the passenger side because his door was in the water."

Robinson got out -- and officers immediately checked him out to see if he was drunk or high ... but cops concluded he was NOT impaired. 

The Jaguars issued a statement on the matter -- saying, "The team is aware that running back Denard Robinson was involved in a single-car accident over the weekend and is thankful that nobody was injured."

Johnny Manziel Military Witness In Hit-and-Run ... 'Didn't Seem Drunk'

7/5/2016 8:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0705-johnny-manziel-TMZ-01Johnny Manziel has a pretty solid witness in his hit-and-run accident -- a U.S. Army soldier who says the QB didn't do anything wrong when he was T-boned in Dallas last month. 

TMZ Sports obtained the crash report filed with the Texas Dept. of Transportation which says Johnny was traveling with his old Texas A&M teammate, Jonathan Stewart, when they were hit by a black Dodge. 

The report lists a witness ... so, we called him up -- and it turns out the guy is a 39-year-old Army reservist who says he has no personal relationship with Manziel ... he just happened to be driving near him that day. 


The soldier essentially says Manziel has been telling the truth -- that he was hit by a person making a left turn ... and when Johnny pulled over to deal with the crash, the other car sped away. 

We asked the question everyone's thinking -- did Johnny seem intoxicated? 

The witness told us, "He didn't seem drunk. He seemed shaken up." 

Cops opened up an investigation and were hunting for the other driver. 

As for Johnny, the witness says he seemed okay -- though he did complain of leg pain -- but refused medical treatment and drove himself home.

Of course, Johnny left for a party trip to Mexico a short time later ... so, we're guessing no real damage.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Manziel's Nissan GTR sustained all sorts of damage to the driver's side of the car this week ... in an incident that also set off his airbags. 

We spoke with Manziel's rep, Denise Michaels, who tells us ... "Johnny told me his car was T-boned and the driver just rode away right after. He reported it to police."

But here's the weird thing ... we spoke with Dallas PD and as of Tuesday afternoon, we were told there was no record of an incident involving Manziel. 

update_graphic_red_bar9:14 AM PT -- The Dallas PD is now saying they DO have a report from Manziel -- though it's unclear when the report was filed. 

Cops say the accident occurred Monday night -- and Manziel claims he has a witness from his car and an impartial witness who can corroborate his story. 

Manziel's rep says the QB hit his head in the crash -- but did not suffer a concussion or any other major injury. 

Johnny Manziel Another Mysterious Car Wreck

6/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0621_johnny_manziel_crash_car_launchMore troubling photos involving Johnny Manziel -- a car owned by the ex-NFL star was clearly involved in a bad accident in Dallas ... with the driver's side completely smashed in. 

TMZ Sports obtained pics of Manziel's 2015 Nissan GTR -- the same car he was driving during his alleged domestic incident with his ex-GF, Colleen Crowley, last year in Ohio. 

Multiple sources tell us the car appeared Monday night at a Dallas apartment complex where Manziel is supposedly staying ... looking like it had been T-boned. You can see in the pics the driver's side airbag was deployed. We've confirmed the car is still registered to Manziel.

We don't know how it happened, who was driving, or if Manziel was even in the car at the time. Cops tell us they have no record of a crash involving Manziel. We're trying to find answers. 

We've reached out to Johnny's rep and Johnny himself -- but so far, no word back from either. 

Just a few months ago, Manziel was involved in another bad accident on the Sunset Strip -- when a Mercedes he was in crashed into a pole. He was unscathed in the wreck.

The driver of the wrecked truck, Jonathan Elder, tells us the actors rushed to pull his unconscious brother out of the passenger seat. In a scene straight out of an action flick ... he says 'Raphael' and 'Chibs' used a crowbar to free his bro right before the truck caught fire.

BTW ... the guy driving Tommy and Alan to the airport is a military vet who provided medical assistance until emergency crews arrived. Tommy took a pic with him after the incident.

Talk about a dream team.

5/31/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Manziel says he's "hashing it out" with the owner of a NY luxury car rental company who ambushed him in the street Friday night ... but says the guy "shouldn't have come at me like that."

The ambush went down on Friday -- when Wayne (the owner of Precision Concierge) tracked down the QB and confronted him over an expensive Mercedes he allegedly rented and then wrecked in L.A. 

Wayne told TMZ Sports ... Manziel had promised to pay for the wrecked ride -- but never did. So, Wayne found him in Manhattan on Friday and tried to get answers right from Johnny himself. 

Fast forward to Monday night ... Johnny says the two sides are talking, but he's clearly not happy with the way things went down.

0524-bam-margera-nicole-boyd-TMZ-GETTY-01Bam Margera's wife got busted for DUI after getting into an accident while driving the same Porsche Bam was in a wreck years ago ... TMZ has learned. 

According to cops in West Chester, PA ... Nicole Boyd collided with another driver in a Hyundai earlier this month. Nicole said she had the green light, but the other driver insisted she ran a red. Either way, Bam and Nicole's Porsche Panamera got banged up badly.

Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene, and the other driver was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. Meanwhile, officers said Nicole smelled of alcohol and bombed field sobriety tests. She was arrested and booked for DUI.

Bam's Panamera might be cursed. As we reported, he got sideswiped in the ride shortly after getting it in 2011. 

As for Nicole's DUI -- Bam's had his struggles with the bottle, and his best friend, Ryan Dunn, was wasted when he died in a high speed crash.
